(Waukesha County, WI)-The Wisconsin Supreme Court race continue to twist and turn, even after District Judge Joanne Kloppenberg (D) declared victory on Wednesday, April 6th. But the newest development is that a clerk in Wisconsin's biggest conservative country has suddenly "found" a huge amount of votes for incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Judge David Prosser (R), according to the Milwaukee-Madison Journal-Sentinel (JS) Online.

Specifically, David Prosser gained 7,582 votes in conservative-lending Waukesha County, after a major counting error of Brookfield city results was detected, stated County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus (R) announced in a stunning development this afternoon.

Nickolaus says the reason for the big change is that data transmitted from the City of Brookfield was imported but that she failed to save those results to the database. Brookfield cast 14,315 votes on April 5 -- 10,859 of those votes went to Prosser and 3,456 went to JoAnne Kloppenburg.

What is leading to suspecting thoughts regarding Clerk Nickolaus sudden announcement, is that her vote counting actions have been of question within the past year. Specifically, JS online reported back on August 13th, of Clerk Nickolaus' decision to go it alone in how she collects and maintains election results. Her actions had other county officials raising a red flag about the integrity of the system.

Nickolaus said she decided to take the election data collection and storage system off the county's computer network - and keep it on stand-alone personal computers accessible only in her office - for security reasons.
"What it gave me was good security of the elections from start to finish, without the ability of someone unauthorized to be involved," she said.
Then, Director of Administration Norman A. Cummings said because Clerk Nickolaus has kept them out of the loop, the county's information technology specialists have not been able to verify Nickolaus' claim that the system is secure from failure or tampering

Waukesha County is the only area in the state to keep their district votes counts on a personal office computer.
"The purpose of the canvass is to catch these kinds of mistakes," Nickolaus said on April 7th about this error in voting counts for the Wisconsin Supreme Court race. She called it human error that is "common in this process." "I apologize," Nickolaus said.
All county canvassers around Wisconsin were required to update their vote totals , on Thursday, with David Prosser and JoAnne Kloppenburg each making gains.

Surprisingly, the county other changes, were pale in comparison shocking development in Conservative Waukesha County, where Prosser's total increased by 11,008 and Kloppenburg's votes rose by only 3,426.
